counties, it is a case all over the country, they are underperforming and we are overperforming and mr. axelrod can spin it how he wants, about john mccain or not doing well but the matter of the fact is, his message is carrying the day. >> chris: but we talked with axelrod about the real clear politics average of recent polls and the electoral map and here's a list of the key swing states i want to ask you about. you are trailing in consin, you are trailing in pennsylvania, ohio, and iowa, and, as you suggest, you are basically tied in what for you is the must must-win state of virginia where the obama campaign,nd we'll get to the specific states in a moment but i want to ask you about the general point. are you saying that these polls, public polls are wrong, or are you saying they may be right but you will win any way because your ground game is better and you'll turn the voters out more effect thistle than they are. >> it is like nailing jello to a tree, the polls are all over the place and they are different in each state by each day. there are two numbers to keep in mind, across

now mr. romney is here john ess than w mccain was in 2008. not a good sign in old dominion. in ohio the romney campaign is looking for a big turn-out in southern ohio from coal country in the east on the pennsylvania, west virginia side to hamilton county cincinnati on the western side. with a big turn-out they may be able to overcome what is a substantial democratic turn-out in the northern part of the state around toledo where the detroit bail-out politics played very heavy. they keep watching and waiting recognizing that florida, ohio and virginia as they go, perhaps so goes the country, shep. >> carl cameron, thanks very much. let's get to chicago now and ed a nry following the obam campaign. of the battleground states, three of them are called. pennsylvania, michigan, wisconsin. all for president obama. >> big hoops and hollers here in chicago. they've got the volunteers streaming in behind me starting to come in for what they hope to be a celebration later. the president not here. he is still at his private residence. he had a family dinner. wife, children, mother-in-law, etc.
